Caption Kasch & Co.
Description The E. Kasch store was located in the Platt Building at 4th and P/Commercial. Mr. E. Kasch is the gentleman shown on the right side of the doorway with a watch chain in his vest. He opened his store c. 1892, taking over the space occupied by grocers Wismolek and Aultman (see WF 0117, 0118). On 12-7-1893, the ANACORTES AMERICAN reported, "E. Kasch and Co. Anacortes Bank Building: Have purchased a horse and wagon to be used in delivery of goods to their numerous customers." The 1900 edition of Souvenir Anacortes had an entry for Kasch: "E. Kasch and Co. Groceries and Provisions. This house has been a leading market for groceries and family supplies for 11 years ... Mr. K enjoys the unique distinction of being the only one who weathered the financial storm. Never for one day did he close his doors." The following year, however, Kasch closed his business. On 4-4-1901, the ANACORTES AMERICAN reported, "Stock, fixtures, and goodwill of E. Kasch purchased by E. S. Dodge."
